Washington State Vs. Utah Final Score: Cougars Turnovers Lead To 30-27 OT Loss

The Washington State Cougars were hoping to improve to .500 against the visiting Utah Utes, and managed to come back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to force the game into overtime. In the end, however, key penalties and turnovers  led to a 30-27 Cougars loss.

Freshman quarterback Connor Halliday was not quite able to match his spectacular debut from last week, finishing the game 21-for-48 with 290 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw a whopping four interceptions, including throwing a pick to the Utes defense on a third and 25 situation on the first overtime possession by the Cougars. The play was third and 25 due to an illegal forward pass by Halliday. Utah's Coleman Petersen was then able to nail a 38 yard field goal to give the Utes a 30-27 overtime win.

In all, the Cougars had five turnovers, thanks to the four interceptions and a lost fumble. By contrast, the Utes only had two lost fumbles in the game, despite being hit for 105 penalty yards on 11 penalties.

Jared Karstetter led all Cougars wide receivers with 111 yards on six catches and a touchdown.
